Example:

curl -X POST "http://localhost:8080/rest/fcr:backup"

 

Response:

Status: 200 OK

Body:
/tmp/fcrepo4-data/path/to/backup/directory


Example 2: Including a destination directory

curl -X POST -d /path/to/backup/destination "http://localhost:8080/rest/fcr:backup"

 

Response:

Status: 200 OK

 

 

Status:

200 OK

 


POST fcr:restore Replace repository content with data from a backup directory
